Discusses the evolution of unpaid caregiving in Canada in the last 100 years. Illustrates how care demands in households have increased and how highly complex care issues have been transferred to the home, while at the same time cutbacks in the welfare state have reduced or eliminated other supports. Explores the health effects of caregiver burden, still seen as women's work, and suggests the creation of conditions for voluntary and skilled care.
